Well, April Fool’s Day came and went. Some companies had pretty good pranks and others had some that were just meh. Here are some of the best April Fool’s pranks from 2016, done by companies and advertised online. April Fool’s has become one way that companies can get themselves in the media for just being pretty zany. Did your company do anything for April Fool’s?
Netflix went all Stamos, with a funny trailer for a documentary about iconic actor and permanent heartthrob John Stamos, who is currently experiencing a resurgence on some sitcoms. But the April Fool’s Prank went further than that with the titles of the categories having some funny names saying how they were approved by John Stamos.
Burger King France had a big hit with the single serving French Fry, potentially playing on the stereotype that French people are known for being slim and trim. It is especially funny because in the ad, a guy says “What is this, a joke?” and the comically dramatic announcer says “No! Not at all!” though it is clearly a joke. They also advertised it as a good way to stop people from stealing your fries!
Google, who is well known for having amazing pranks on April Fool’s, had quite a few that make the cut. First, they made Google Plastic, a see through headset that looks somewhat like Google Cardboard that is designed for “actual reality,” as opposed to virtual reality. It advertises features like an analog watch and 360 degree audio.
Finally, Google Photos offered up a search by Emoji feature, which would be great in real life, as people move further and further from using real words to talk and change over to using funny symbols to do everything – even to describe full movies!
